SAN FRANCISCO-Three credit unions in this city and another on the East Coast have partnered in a program to make loans for taxi medallions.

After more than 30 years of debating reform of taxi medallions in San Francisco, the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency voted Aug. 3 to approve the launch of a short-term pilot program for the buying and selling of San Francisco taxi medallions that allows those medallion holders who are more than 70 years old or disabled to sell their medallion to a new, qualified driver. It is being projected that approximately 200 medallions will be sold under this program.
